Some random OT comments because I can't help myself…don't worry I'm almost done.
Also, we have a lot of Medicaid parents or parents living in projects who could use baby toys…or exer-saucers, or sterilized bottles, etc…many of these parents have NO TOYS at all for their kids. So blocks, etc…are awesome. Also the small $1 items in the bins at the front of Target are often great – like right now they have these tiny little pouches of plastic animals and I should really go buy some more because they can be used for so many things – basically those of you who read this that are occasionally in the Memphis area, please consider saving or collecting baby toys that can be donated….or even normal toys…
I've had a lot of dreams about OT things…like I dreamt about putting the belly-dancing finger cymbals (“zils”) on a child the other day…and I dreamt about buying this family a bunch of clothes at a Goodwill although this one aardvark t-shirt was so awesome I wanted it for myself…just a lot of dreams where I am wanting to get stuff for people….it's so hard to see people who have nothing…and to want to just empty my bank account and buy them the world…but it's a slippery slope. Ugh. Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for creative ways and things to do…it all helps, every little bit.
